Welcome Back Royal Portrush

October 20th, 2015

The R&A announced today that The 148th Open will be played at Royal Portrush in 2019, marking a historic return to Northern Ireland for golf’s oldest and most international Championship after nearly 70 years. The Open is expected to be the biggest sporting event ever held in Northern Ireland, generating more than £70 million in terms of economic impact and destination marketing benefit. So, a welcome return in more ways than one.
